To be fair virtual memory requires processor support as well as operating system support (EDIT: to be efficient anyway, you can do it with a virtual machine of course), and it wasn't until protected mode (286's; although I think it was pretty clunky on a 286?) and OS's that supported it arrived (NT3.1, OS/2) that virtual memory made flat memory models obsolete/legacy for home PCs.
